Commercial vehicle major Ashok Leyland has launched its new range of AVTR tipper models with high horse-power - AVTR 2832 and AVTR 3532. The CVs are powered by 8.0L A6 Series engines with iGEN6 technology and generate 320HP and deliver 1200NM torque.
The A6 engines are indigenously designed and developed by Ashok Leyland, which the company says offer excellent torque, incredible acceleration, pulling power and unmatched fuel efficiency.
The AVTR range comes with H6 and A4 engines for the present and will deliver a maximum of 250 HP. However, there has been a need for a vehicle in the deep mining tipper segment, as the vehicles need to negotiate steep gradients with very high payloads. With the launch of AVTR 2832 and AVTR 3532, Ashok Leyland says it will fill this gap and strengthening the tipper portfolio. The launch of these vehicles with the high horsepower A6 engines will help customers for applications like road construction, irrigation, deep mining, boulder quarry and others.
Sanjay Saraswat, Head – M&HCV, Ashok Leyland said, “With the launch of the High Horse Power Tippers; AVTR 2832 and AVTR 3532, we aim to provide products with higher productivity and efficiency to our customers. We have always attempted to identify product gaps and fill those with differentiated products, and the AVTR High Horse Power Tippers are a testimony to Ashok Leyland’s commitment towards the same. The High Horse Power Tippers are inbuilt with the state-of-the-art A6 series engines that are designed and developed indigenously.”
Sanjeev Kumar, head – M&HCV, Sales & Network, Ashok Leyland, said, “The launch of the High Horse Power Tippers; AVTR 2832 and AVTR 3532, are very significant in this geography. Hyderabad city and its adjacent regions have progressive, booming industries such as mining, horticulture, and agriculture that fuel the demand for these innovative trucks. The new range has been built with a focus on higher productivity, increased fuel efficiency, improved long-haul commutes with better ground clearance in difficult terrains, in-house designed hydraulic system to reduce the maintenance time, and will deliver overall on a lower total cost of ownership.”
